We often take for granted the very things that most deserve our gratitude. After all, gratitude consists of being more aware of what you have, than what you don’t. If anything makes us count our blessings, in the wake of the terrible terrorist attacks in Paris, is that no matter what actions deranged people may carry out, we still have our freedom, we hold our heads up high, and we will continue to live our lives to the fullest. We will continue to get together with friends and family, enjoy a glass of wine, a show, or discover new places abroad. Hell, we will party until daytime comes, because we refuse to be afraid.
That is something that terrorists will never manage to take away from us, wherever we may live in this world. On this day, I reflect on the fact that I live in a free country, with a roof over my head, that my family and friends are safe and sound in Paris, and that I am surrounded with so many loving people I met throughout the seventeen years I have lived in the beautiful US of A.
To see the amazing outpour of love and solidarity from everyone fills my heart with joy: together we stand united as one.
My thoughts, today, go to all the innocents who fell, whether on 9/11, in Beirut, in Syria, and so many other countries in the world. Together, today, we express our gratitude for the fact that we are all together in celebration of all great things in this world.
I wish you all a very happy Thanksgiving holiday,
I am aware you are going to receive so many emails about Black Friday etc, so I am telling you, right there and then, that there won't be any special offers from me on that day.
I, however, believe in supporting Small Business Saturday, so stay tuned for a flash sale across my website on Saturday, November 28. Details to come.
